Bally Total Fitness was one of the dominant gyms in the Philadelphia area for the past two decades. They offered attractive rates — including lifetime memberships — at their once new and glimmering gyms. But like all things, Bally’s run came to an end and they wound down, selling their facilities and memberships to LA Fitness, reports The Philadelphia Inquirer.
It had been assumed that members of Bally’s would be able to continue using their current gyms or new LA Fitness gyms nearby. However, several members found that they were steered to gyms in faraway New York, prompting the Bally Total Fitness lawsuit.
